In addition to the usual twelve contestants, four alums will enter the house for a separate prize and game.
To revamp things up in the 14th round of "Big Brother", CBS announced that it has added a new twist in the reality show competition. Four of the most successful players will return to the house to play their own game for their own separate prize.
CBS did not go into details about the new format, neither did they reveal who will come back. Meanwhile, the other 12 contestants will still compete under the old rules for the chance to walk away with $500,000. These houseguests and their bios have been introduced on the show's website.
The new season premieres Thursday, July 12 with revelation of the returning contestants. The show will air three nights a week starting Sunday, July 15.
